A strong man wrestles you to the ground to show off; a stronger man boosts your self-esteem and then accidentally breaks three of your ribs with a supportive hug. Learn the tenets of both strength and community with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four weeks of unlimited boot-camp classes from Shape Up Fitness (an $89 value). Classes occur Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:15 p.m. and Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. at the Cole Park Amphitheatre, and on Mondays–Thursdays at 6 p.m. at Meadowbrook Elementary School.
Shape Up Fitness nutritionist and fitness expert April Rojas tightens tummies and trims torsos with exercise programs tailored to shed pounds and fitness inhibitions. Tone trouble spots at unlimited classes led by certified aerobic instructors, and engage in kinetically charged moves that condition the upper and lower body, core, and hard-to-slim foreheads. Warm up with calisthenics and plyometrics before plugging into circuit-training sessions that get hearts pumping and substructures sweating with permissible pain. Each day is slightly different than the next, and Shape Up Fitness's instructors ensure a boredom-proof workout regimen while hosting a free nutrition seminar once a month for those wondering if gravy is a fruit or a vegetable. New boot-camp sessions begin February 1, March 1, March 30, and April 28.
